In 1993 a choreographer, teacher and dancer Iztok Kovač established the international dance company En-Knap in Leuven, Belgium, under the wings of the Klapstuk Festival; a year later the group moved its headquarters to Ljubljana, where he established EN-KNAP Productions. After 14 years of project-based work, Kovač founded in 2007 the international dance company EnKnapGroup, the first permanent ensemble for contemporary dance in Slovenia, which began working on a repertory basis. Two years later EN-KNAP Productions was entrusted with the management of the Španski Borci Cultural Centre in Ljubljana, where Kovač is the artistic director and programmer of the domestic and international programme. In addition to 32 of his own projects, artistic direction and pedagogical work, his opus also includes six dance films. Kovač has received numerous domestic and international awards for his work.
